– Major fire in Bangkok’s Chinatown injures dozens
Fires spread quickly in the capital Saturday after dark, causing crowds to flee from smoke in the famous Chinatown area. Firefighters took close to three hours to subdue the blaze in an older section with wooden houses. Guests were hoisted to safety by fire trucks from a 7-floor hotel, and several roads were closed off. Amazingly, there were no fatalities, although three dozen people were treated for smoke inhalation, and several others sustained related injuries. On Sunday, forensic teams scoured the area for clues about the cause. Their Majesties, the King and the Queen, expressed concerns for those affected by the fire and donated relief supplies to the victims.

– Thai committee votes to reclassify cannabis as narcotics
A committee overseeing the control of drug use has voted to reclassify cannabis and hemp as narcotics, announcing that the law will be amended by the end of this year. Cannabis will be allowed for medical use with a prescription issued by a qualified pharmacist, but not for recreational use. This decision marks a setback for weed shops and growers who don’t meet medical standards. The reclassification excludes stems, roots, seeds, and anything under 0.2% THC. The Narcotics Control Board and the FDA will now work on amending related laws. This move is opposed by Deputy PM Anutin, who previously oversaw the legalization that retailers exploited. Anutin is a senior member of the Bhumjaithai Party, which holds the most seats in the new congress.

– Peeping Tom caught filming women in restroom
Thais have posted on social media about a Nonthaburi man who filmed women in a restroom with his phone. A squatter spotted him and quickly raised the alarm, leading to his detention by staff until police arrived. A check on his phone revealed five different clips from that evening. Despite this, he was fined just 1,200 baht and released. The victims are demanding harsher penalties after forcing him to destroy his phone and SIM card to prevent the clips from being shared.

– Foreigner steals delivery van & crashes on Phuket
In Phuket, police were surprised to find that the driver of a delivery van involved in a crash was a foreigner. He had stolen the truck after a local left it running while grabbing a snack from a vendor. The local tried to chase the truck on foot but couldn’t keep up.

– Walking Street nightclub raided, Thai’s & foreigner arrested
At home and on Walking Street, over 200 police and civil servants raided a nightclub at 3 AM Sunday, where over 400 people were still enjoying the lights and music. Five people, including four Thais and a foreigner, were found to have taken ketamine.

– Fire at Mitsubishi Motors 
In Amata City Industrial Estate, locals coughed as a stock of used tires and other parts caught fire at a property held by Mitsubishi Motors. The fire spread quickly amid dense, acrid black smoke, reaching other storage areas before being extinguished.

– Thai man arrested for blackmailing foreign ex-girlfriend with intimate videos
A 40-year-old Thai man was arrested over the weekend for threatening to post intimate video clips made with his French ex-girlfriend. After they split, he demanded 900 euros to keep the videos private. The police watched as she transferred the money before arresting him. The couple had moved to Vietnam for her work, but after their breakup, he was left penniless.

– Pattaya woman injured in alleged attack by Indian on Beach Road
A local woman claimed she was attacked and beaten for no reason by an Indian man while wandering Beach Road Saturday night. Police are reviewing CCTV footage to establish the facts. At 3 AM, she was found in a side street, wounded and cut. Authorities warn that the latest CCTV technology covers even the most hidden areas of the city, ensuring quick identification of perpetrators.

– Pattaya woman arrested for drugging & robbing Singaporean lover
A Singaporean man enjoyed the regular services of a 33-year-old Thai woman for over four years until he woke up drugged to find his Rolex, half a million baht worth of gold, and 800 Singapore dollars missing. The woman disappeared last month, but police identified and arrested her this weekend in Pattaya. She has a thick police rap sheet, including theft and other outstanding warrants. The stolen watch was found in her possession, but she claims any other items have long been converted to cash. They met on a dating site, and her profile has since been removed.
